Black-capped chickadees are found from New England to the Pacific Northwest in the top half of the continental United States and Alaska. They prefer forest edges and suburban communities. The black-capped chickadee is a favorite songbird of bird enthusiasts because the tiny bird never looses its personality and beauty even during the worst winters. The call of the black-capped chickadee is a whistle that sounds like fee-bee or see-bee. Although some black-capped chickadees migrate to warmer climates during the winter, many choose to stay in colder states and survive by utilizing stored food and occasionally visiting bird feeders. This trait makes them a popular species of backyard habitat enthusiasts and birders. Help NWF in its efforts to protect and recover the wild places that sustain wildlife.
